STEPS - Specialized Teaching, Education, Partnership & Support Since 1997
STEPS is our early intensive behavioural intervention program. Children initially receive five full days of one-on-one Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) treatment each week, year round.
Individualized written programs are developed and carried out for each child at both the child's home and The Summit Centre. In-home treatment promotes generalization of new skills to the home, and facilitates family involvement.
Programming is aimed at improving language and communication, social skills and play, cooperative behaviour and independent living skills. The Summit Centre works with preschools, schools and other agencies to promote smooth transitions.
This program is being phased out as currently enrolled children graduate in 2024.
